    Gravity has many benefits to humanity. It holds us to the earth so we do not fall off the earth and die in space. It holds the planets in orbit around the sun, and moons in orbit around their planets. It also holds stars in orbit around the center of the universe. (Gibben, page 14) Sir Isaac Newton thought that God created a perfect universe. He thought our universe was so perfectly designed that if God left the universe could run by itself. This view was extremely different early pagan scienti...
  • The Study Of Aerodynamics And Gravity
    1,507 words
    My topic for the science fair is " Which falling objects fall the fastest? ." Many factors affect the speed of aerodynamics such as the different forces on the object. The aerodynamics of the object and the physics surrounding the object. Great scientists have studied falling objects such as Galileo Galilei and Sir Isaac Newton. I will discuss their lives, experiments and scientific findings. Aerodynamics is the study of force on an object. It has been called the science of flight. Aerodynamics...
  • Albert Einstein General Relativity
    433 words
    Relativity and the Cosmos In November of 1919, at the age of 40, Albert Einstein became an overnight celebrity, thanks to a solar eclipse. An experiment had confirmed that light rays from distant stars were deflected by the gravity of the sun in just the amount he had predicted in his theory of gravity, General Relativity. General Relativity was the first major new theory of gravity since Isaac Newton's, more than two hundred and fifty years earlier. Einstein became a hero, and the myth building...

    Hume's Mind Game Travis Slabyphil-101 Alex Clarkson 2-17-97 The human mind is a very intricate machine. There have been many people that have attempted, and failed, to explain how the human mind operates. After reading Hume, I was in agreement with a lot of what he was explaining. Hume, in my mind, has come the closest to uncovering the minds operations. Robert Hume dealt with a lot of what Decarte talked about in his writings. The difference between Decarte and Hume is that Hume 'ironed out' a ...
  • Black Holes Hole Mass Star

    Black Holes black hole is the velocity necessary to take one away from one's own gravitational force. For example, the escape velocity of earth is equal to 11 km / s . anything that wants to escape earth's gravitational force or pull must go at least 11 km / s , no matter what the thing is. The escape velocity of an object depends on how compact it is; that is, the ratio of its mass to radius. A black hole is an object so compact that, close to it, even the speed of light is not fast enough to e...

    Stars, comets, planets, they are all visible when you look up past our atmosphere. What if I told you that there were objects up there that you could not see, but had more gravity than an object 500 time larger than our sun. Objects, that are capable of swallowing whole planets within a split second of time. An object that would steal light right out of thin-air. These objects are more powerful than anything man made. Black holes are the most popular unknown object in science. A black hole is a...
  • Sir Isaac Newton His Three Laws Of Motion
    322 words
    Isaac Newton was born on Christmas day in 1642, in Lincolnshire, England. Newton attended Trinity College in 1661 and had both his Bachelor of Arts and his Master of Arts by 1669. That same year he became the associate of the French Academy of Sciences. He was elected to Parilment, then appointed a warden, and finally, President of the Royal Society. Newton was a master of science and mathematics. He discovered calculus, before Leibniz' became popular. Perhaps Newton's most popular discovery, t...

    The Effects of Gravity There are some people who worry that when they " re outside, if they don't keep a good grip on the ground, they " ll just go flinging off into space. They needn't really worry about this, because gravity generally keeps that sort of thing from happening. The thing is, no one is really sure what causes gravity, but the effects have been studied by many physicists and astronomers. Three of the more obvious effects of gravity are things falling down, weight, and the the moon ...
  • How A Plane Flies
    315 words
    Scientists have tried to figure out how a plane flies and although they don't agree on exactly how it does, they have a good idea. The four forces acting on a plane, Newton's Third Law, and Bernoulli's Principle all are used to explain how a plane flies. Lift, thrust, drag, and gravity are the four forces acting on a plane. Drag and gravity both act against the plane. Drag is something that obstructs the airflow, slowing down or hindering the way an aircraft moves. Gravity, as you know, pulls do...
  • Gravity Falling Object

    Gravity is really an unknown force. Wec an define it as a field of influence, and that it effects the entire existence of the universe. Some people think that gravity consists of particles called gravitons, which travel at the speed of light. The only thing we do know is how gravity operates in different parts of our universe. Without gravity, there would be no space and time. There is a legend that says that Galileo once dropped two objects off the Leaning Tower of Pisa to show that the heavie...

    The Future of NASA One hundred years from now, NASA's space program will not be so far advanced that people will be able to beam around the Universe or travel through time. However, unless something goes terribly wrong with the world, it is expected to advance tremendously. New, high-tech designs for rockets will make them more environmentally safe. Rockets will also be recycled and reused. Systems retrieving parts of rockets that are today, left behind in space, will be created. Astronauts will...

    The Gravity Bong I was introduced to the gravity bong by a friend. He told me the full name as described to him was the "Afghanistan Gravity Bong." We were sitting around one night and decided to try one out. While I could go into detail concerning the mechanics of the bong's operation, I don't think that is really necessary. The reason it is called a "gravity bong" and not something else is this is what someone called it, that is how they described it to their friends, and now it is an accepted...

    In physics MC 503, we are required to write a paper twice a semester summarizing the previous four to six labs. In this, the first paper, I am writing about the previous four labs. As each lab comes around each week I start to get excited. I know that the lab is going to help me understand or comprehend some form of formula I am learning in the chapters. As we do one lab and look back upon the previous. You may notice that the foregoing lab is a part of a current lab. Such as in acceleration du...
  • Big Bang Force Universe Newton

    Stars and galaxies began to form about one billion years following the Big Bang, and since then the universe has simply continued to grow larger and cooler, creating conditions conducive to life. Three excellent reasons exist for believing in the big-bang theory. First, and most obvious, the universe is expanding. Second, the theory predicts that 25 percent of the total mass of the universe should be the helium that formed during the first few minutes, an amount that agrees with observations. Fi...

    Describe Social and Economical conditions of this time. During the time period of 1643 - 1727 there were many things happening. One thing, which was happening, was the plague. 1/3 of the world died in that terrible time. Newton was very lucky that he was sent to his aunts to live. The people were no longer excepting the theories of Plato and Aristotle. The scientists of that day such as Galileo had a new approach to science: make observations, carry out experiments, test ideas, analyze results,...

In the world today a paucity of these heroes is present. However, Albert Einstein can be considered a role model and hero. Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Germany where he developed his theories of relativity. In 1933 when Hitler came to power Einstein fled to the United States. At Princeton he co...
  • Black Holes Do They Exist
    1,833 words
    Black holes are postulated to be one of the most destructive forces known in the universe, with nothing being able to escape from its gaping maw, not even light. Even, supposedly, all known laws of physics fall apart inside the depths of the black hole. So how does the universe allow these objects to exist? Or rather do they exist or are they just a product of humanity's misunderstanding? Fundamentally black holes are a product of gravity, the weakest of the four known forces in the universe. It...
  • Blackholes Event Horizon
    600 words
    The term blackhole is misleading, as they are not holes, but heavy, dense stellar bodies. The more dense, and massive an object, the more it warps the fabric of space-time, creating ever deepening gravity wells. These gravity wells draw in other stellar bodies, adding their mass to that of the blackhole, increasing it's gravity, and the size of what is called the event horizon. The event horizon is the distance from the singularity that the gravitational effects weaken to the point where light c...
  • Electronic Scale Mass Balance Precise
    496 words
    By using three devices, the platform balance, electronic scale, and the inertia balance it is possible to defy the relationship between mass and weight. The mass of an object relates to the amount of matter there is present. On the other hand, gravity is referred to as the pull or force of an object to the Earth. The platform balance and electronic scale are balances that require gravity to "pull" or have a force on the objects being measured to obtain its mass. The mass measuring device that wo...

    The Asteroids Paper #1 The article that I have reviewed is on NASA's close-up images of asteroid Eros. A CNN staff writer talks about the way the images of the asteroid looks and writes how scientists make observations. The scientists believe that the asteroid may have broken off from small planet from the observations of the images. The robot ships pictures show signs of geological layering. The scientist's educated guesses are that Eros was once part of a larger body and the images show six or...
